I’ve been fortunate to shoot some neat stories. From big wall climbing in Africa, chasing tiger sharks in the Galapagos, to following avalanche researchers with National Geographic, its’ been quite the privilege. My forte is the run-n-gun, down and dirty, kinda work where I get personal with the stories I’m covering. Whether I’m sloshing through the jungle with 4 hours of sleep or bouncing in the back of a pickup in Oaxaca, I’ll be the happiest guy around. I am more than familiar with a variety of camera systems, drones, gimbals, and timelapse rigs. I will be at home on your project, big or small.

The reel is currently being remade in all it's updated glory.
